due respect, you have promoted obama care for years. if it's so great, why aren't you on it? why isn't congress on it? why aren't federal employees on it? even simple sebelius refused to go on the very health care program that you all think is so great for the rest of us. and her excuse when pressed? that it would be illegal for her to do so. there's a reason i call her simple. it's not illegal. even in the land of oz. and what makes you think that you know better than we what is good health care for us and our families? a true leader leads by example. instead you look down your nose and dictate to the rest of us. you reign on high as you give waiver to the union friends, the ones who got you elected while the rest of us face massive premium increases we can't afford for benefits we simply don't need like maternity benefits and pediatric health care. in the past, poor people who couldn't afford health care had medicaid. now, you made affordable health care so unaffordable that virtually everyone is now signing up for medicaid. so here we are. a day late. and a dollar short. with mill

to keep their health insurance, yes, you can. and the following 3 1/2 years, mr. obama and administration officials repeated this promise. so many times that the white house website, white house.gov now has 102,000 matches for the words, quote, you can keep your insurance, unquote. this week, president obama went to boston on the same day health and human services secretary appeared on capitol hill. the obama mission, a 9/11 emergency rescue of obama care after its disastrous october rollout. the tactic, defend and attack. broke out concerning 10 million americans who have health coverage under individual or small group plans. they are getting notice from insurance companies that obama care regulations mean that when it comes to keeping their current plans, no, they can't. white house spokesman is already elastsizing, adding a triple x sized caveat. the canceled plans were substandard and the new mandatory often costlier plans will be better. once the exchange website works, that is. the secretary apologized for the faulty website, but not the mass cancellation. house energy and commerce
as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of obama care over the last several years saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case. he could know it by looking at massachusetts and seeing people there lost insurance. >> but the so-called architect of obama care, dr. emanuel, is now defending the president's repeated insistence that americans would be able to keep their health plans if they wanted to. he's now blaming insurance companies for acting unexpectedly and dropping plans that do not comply with new mandatory minimum standards. >> passed the law, we said any plan that existed before the date the law was passed would be grandfathered in unless lots of changes were made. now, you know, we have to imagine obama care not against a blank slate but what against insurance companies regularly do. >> now, david axelrod the white house senior adviser in the initial debates over obama care said it would be a huge mistake to define the entire affordable care act by the website deb

at the state of the obama presidency as he struggles now to fix the rollout of his signature health care law. >> we are just going to keep on working at it. we're going to grind it up. >> one year ago this week, president obama beat former massachusetts governor mitt romney in the 2012 election. now the president invokes the name of his defeated gop rival to defend health care reform. in just a moment, governor romney joins me for an exclusive interview. and president obama's approval rating is at an all-time low. obamacare is at a rough start. more u.s. spy revelations have rocked even our closest allies. and did the president consider replacing vice president joe biden with then-secretary of state hillary clinton? that's according to a bombshell in a new book "double down, game changing 2012." bob wood card, katty kay, david axelrod, bill kristol. i'm david gregory in washington. >>> and good sunday morning. the killing of a tsa agent at los angeles international airport is raising questions about the motives of the 23-year-old suspect, and also airport security. do tsa agents nee

are getting better. >> let me ask you. yes or no. in five years, will obama care have made health care better or worse. >> i honestly don't know. i would say no change. >> doctor, dr. boon is the only one that read the bill. and based on what i know it will make it worse. one thing i want to preserve. i love my patients and be a doctor. you have to maintain the doctor/patient relationship and i am not sure the bill will allow that. >> i read the bill and it took me 19 hours and it will crash the system and be the worst nightmare. and i feel like i love mi family and patients, i came here because i want to cope my patients. >> your patients are fortunate to have you. it breaks my heart that doctors are leaving the profession after all of the training and commitment and dedication not because of not loving medicine and patients, but because they can't make the business end of it work. if you think your doctor is getting rich you are wrong. i want your doctor to be wealthy, why? because doctors can treat me and not how they are going to make their car payment. we got to fix it. and thank you for
of the year because those policies do not comply with the law. president obama has promised that if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. what happens to all those people now that they realize they can't keep their plan? >> in california there's 900,000 getting those notes. 300,000 will get a financial leg up to reduce their costs. 600,000 won't get subsidies. before today they would have been locked into their health plan. now they can pick between different health plans. every health plan will have benefits they will rely on. today, you aren't sure. you have insurance that you might not be covered when you need it. >> are the new plans really comparable? the law mandates certain benefits every has the buy whether they need it or not. a man being forced to take on prenatal care. >> a woman has to pay for the men to get their prostate cancer fixed. let's be clear, we're not putting together an insurance system where you only pay for the services you need in that year. that would be paying as you go and not having insurance. the idea is that you have a group of people in the pool. >> th
forward four years. what barack obama needed in 2008, isn't what he needed in 2012. i think that's inevitably true with presidents. i think it's why you always see the phenomenon of they think about the possibility of changing the v.p. and decide not to. >> i think it looks bad to dump a guy. the times report that the game change authors obtained a memo from governor chris christie's vetting process to be vice president. quote, according to a memo on christie from the vetting team, it had unanswered questions from early in his political career on a securities and exchange commission settlement involving mr. christie's brother. on names and documentation of his household help, and on his medical history. the doi ya was littered with potential land mines. we haven't seen the book yet, but this raises a question. meanwhile mitt romney had another issue with the governor. that would be chris christie's weight. romney marvelled at christie's girth, his difficulties in making his way down the narrow aisle of the campaign bus. watching a video of christie without his suit jacket on romn
for years. she called president obama to demand it stop. >> i repeat, the spying among friends is not at all acceptable for anyone. she was born in communist east germany where the chief of police were using a delegation to washington this week to protest the surveillance. the chairman of the european parliament foreign affairs committee is brook. a distinguished german. he wants a no-spying pledge from the u.s. >> never spy on your friends. >> some members of congress agree. the head of the senate intelligence committee, dianne feinstein, is calling for a quote unquote, major review of u.s. intelligence operations. miss feinstein has been a traditional defender of the nsa. but she says she did not know of the monitoring of miss merkle neither did susan collins, a 17 year veteran of the u.s. senate. >> absolutely no justification for our country should be collecting intelligence information on the leaders of some of our closest allies. >> the reports of nsa spying, by the way, all flow from the studious work by former nsa contractor, edward snowden. >> the national securit
millions of people. will it be the one that defines the obama administration and democrats for years to come? >> absolutely. this is going to be the gift that keeps on giving for republicans. it's not like a scandal that is here and gone tomorrow, it's something that is a program that is rolled out. every glitch is going to be seized on by the republicans. aha, your healthcare plan stinks. >> you -- showing us the republicans don't have to enhance in any accusation they put. on the other hand, you have not heard from that collection of people who could not get any coverage because they had a pre- existing condition. you have not heard from that collection of people that we're going to the emergency room when the problem was critical. you have not heard from the people who no longer will have to carry their kids at their expense when they can do it within the framework of their plan. all of that is what democrats running for re-election and election will be selling. they are going defend the plan and the problem is will obama defend the plan? he seems to have disappeared all of a sudd
, this is a program that's going to affect millions of people across america. it is going to define the obama administration and the democrats for years to come. >> absolutely. this is the gift that keeps on giving for republicans. it's not like the scandal that is here and gone tomorrow. this is a program that is rolled out. it's going to be seized onto the republicans anything, your healthcare plan stinks. >> you are correct. the republicans do not have to enhance any acquisition and make about this. on the other hand, you have not heard from that collection of people who could not get any coverage because they had a pre-existing condition. you have not heard from the collection of people that were going to the emergency room when their problem had become critical. you're just not heard from the people who among longer have to carry their kids at their expense. all of that is what democrats were running for reelection and election will be selling. they are going to defend the plan. the problem is, will obama defend the plan? he seems to have disappeared all of a sudden. >> well, that for th
learned that for at least the past three years the obama administration has known that millions of americans will not be able to keep their health care plans. but the president has continued to promise repeatedly that if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan, period. tell that to over 300,000 people in florida who have received cancellation notices, or the nearly one million californians that may see their health care insurance plans disappear. tell that to the tens of thousands of hoosiers in my state that will see similar notices arriving in their mailboxes. this is about more than just a website. it will take more than an infomercial from the president to fix this. the failure of obamacare's launch is just the tip of the iceberg, and unless we act americans will be stuck on board the titanic. this is why republicans are going to keep fighting to protect consumers from the consequences of the health care law. despite all the problems, warning signs, and broken promises, the president and senate democrats have decided to use it with obam
off the penalties. even delay the entire individual mandate a year, and we heard this week from max baucus. a senator who helped write obama care. >> maybe we should start thinking about penalizing the mandates. it's not their fault for mistakes that the government made. >> should they be delayed? >> no, if the website is working by november 30th, people will have a full four months to sign up and that's no reason to delay them and i don't think you can prejudge now. if it's not adequately working, it's a whole new question. i think it will be up and running by november 30th, and if not we'll have a renewed debate. but to call for it 30 days before it's debuted i think is a mistake. >> mr. capretta, you have the final 30 seconds uninterrupted. >>> we were told all year long it would be ready to go and don't delay the individual mandate. you have millions of people losing their coverage based on the promise they will have something working in 30 days. the window is closing. we should delay the whole thing for a year. this is health care after all, not a minor matter. we should not pl
years. >> we have a lousy economy. we have a president that wants to raise taxes. obama care, the one thing good for the economy, it's hard to implement. >> what does that have to do with anything? >> we do know for a fact -- >> people can't even sign up for it. >> we do know for a fact that millions of people will lose their individual coverage, and they will have to go out and likely have to buy an insurance policy with a higher premium. and we also do know not just from the retail federation but from morgan stanley, this will be the slowest holiday -- let me finish. you're asking me to do the math, and i'm doing the math for you. >> to contribute it to health care is wrong. >> i know already, not factoring that in, charlie, it's the slowest holiday season in five years. >> but what does that have to do with health care? >>> ben stein hit the nail on the head. there's a malaise. that's the bottom line. there's a malaise, and we know it. this is 1979, 1980 all over again. so it does not help. that's why i said there are a lot of nails in this coffin. that's why i said it was the fina
who had the foresight to launch selectus a two years ago, president barack obama. from my perspective at the commerce department, we want to do everything possible to serve you, not just in the next two days, but also in the weeks, months, and years ahead. for example, in just a few weeks, selectusa and the american chamber of commerce in spain will hold a today events at barcelonao 21st and madrid. next april, we will be in the largestgermany, manufacturing show in the world. it may, we will be at the technology conference in houston, the world's largest oil and gas conference. next november, we will be in mechanica,for auto mech a global auto mechanic event. will bring city and state economic development face- to-face with investors in mexico, japan, and europe. if those of you in the room think it would be fruitful, we could look for hosting regional conferences around the united states. we've let us know your thoughts at that. that's on that pier we know we need to move your pace -- the pace of business. we know we need to be outcome driven, helping more united states and foreign
from 45 to 41 and as you know, this is an off year election. both sides are trying to turn out their most loyal supporters and we are seeing a lot. we have seen both of the clintons up here. president obama is up here today too and he will be speaking unjust a few minutes. we have been seeing ken go to the more conservative areas of the state and he has been bringing out people like scott walker but right now the democrats are focused on the attorney general's race and they want to sweep the top of the ticket. and we are seeing this race kind of turning out on two things. the republicans are working hard against obama care and whereas the democrats are saying that look, the republicans are extreme and they are blaming them from the shut down and those are the lines that they are going to see coming out of the race this morning. different style of campaigning too. with terry across the potomac river and bringing in president obama and former president clinton in the week. and in this last sunday push before election day and he is holding rallies at those airports. so let's get m
into a top to bottom democratic bastion. voting for president obama by 24 points in 2008, 23 points last year, every state wide office is controlled by democrats. and last year democrats even gained a veto proof two-thirds majority in the state legislature. this is why one california republican strategist in a memo that leaked out this week offered this assessment to his clients. he said, over the last two decades, california's working class has slowly migrated out of the state, and latinos and women voters are completely disenfranchised with the republican party. there are only a few pockets of conservative voters left in the state and they are only able to help carry the day for republicans in ultra low turnout elections. we're forever hearing that california is the future of america, so is this a glimpse of the future of american politics? here to help answer that, we have buzzfeed's evan mcmorris-santoro, lynn sweet with "9 the chicago sun-times," and ben whalen, head speechwriter for governor pete willisen in the 1990s and research fellow at the hoover institution at stanford university.
career? >> i don't think so. remember something, barack obama won this state by 17 points a year ago. the fact you're eastbouven talk a republican about margin rather than can you win or no is a good thing to have. >> reporter: we've also been talking to voters here. many of them are saying they are seeing the signs of christie's maybe next aspiration might he run for president. i talked to him about that along the way. he says he's thinking about tuesday but understands that that kind of conversation about what might come next has already started. there have been people who have been asking him to sign 2016 posters, that sort of thing. so it is a case of christie, who is a national figure getting national attention, and he knows that the cameras are following him, voters are watching. so he's trying to make a big play to have a big victory in a blue state. this is a democratic place, and he says if a republican can do well here, it sends a message to the country. he also says that he's trying to show that while washington has been really the headquarters of some dysfunction politica
. >>> and the analyst who nailed it in 2012, reads this year's tea leaves. nate silver makes his "this week" debut on our powerhouse roundtable. and rob lowe. this sunday morning. >>> hello again. one year ago this week, president obama was coasting toward re-election, now he's coming off one of the toughest weeks of his second term. let's start out with our chief white house correspondent jon karl. with more on that. you have the obama care, nsa spying controversial and now this new book "double down" shows that winning campaigns aren't pretty on the inside. >> that's right, george. apparently some of the president's top aides leaked so much information to authors of this book. in the president's weekly address, no mention of obama care or veep switches. >> i want to cut through that noise and talk plainly about what we should do right now to keep growing this economy. and creating new jobs. >> reporter: just an effort to turn the page in one of his toughest weeks in his second term. who would have thought this joke on saturday night live. >> millions of americans are visiting healthcare.gov whic
years. >> now, what's interesting about president obama's remarks, is that he didn't mention obama care at all. now, on the other side of the aisle, republicans have been trying to hammer all democrats over obama care and ken cuccinelli has been campaigning with a number of high-profile americans and talking about that. and ken cuccinelli says if you like obama care, you should vote now. democrats say that they've been leading in the polls and terry mcauliffe has led every single pole in this case since july. they think that their side works and they plan on circulating some of those videos saying just that on wednesday morning, should he win. don? >> well, we are see webds morning. fresh off of her snl job, kerry washington is out on the trail, as well, right? >> she was. and that was actually impressive. i fell asleep watching snl last night, don. so she was able to make it from new york to washington today. but sle is in washington quite a bit, actually. show's very politically active. she was talking about the women's vote, which is very important to democrats, especially here in no

, thank you. >>> there is another race that's starting to heat up even though year less than a year into president obama's second term. we're talking about the race for president. last night new york senator chuck schumer urged hillary clinton to run for the white house, saying she'd lead his party to victory. and today new jersey governor chris christie is traveling around new jersey as he runs for re-election in what's widely seen as a test run for president himself. david gregory is moderator of "meet the press." good morning. great to see you. >> morning, lester. >> schumer in his endorsement of clinton says she has his full and unwavering support. with her his party with vanquish ted cruz, the tea party republicans in 2016. i'm curious, does this start to sound like the beginning perhaps of a series of coordinated and carefully timed endorsements to give her candidacy a ring of invincibility or inevitability? >> yeah, i think you're right. i think that's the right instinct. as i talk to supporters of hillary clinton, they're unabashed about saying that she's running. that all s
this rallying cries have intensified in the five years since barack obama raised his right hand and became president of the united states. after all, we didn't hear any of this during the bush administration. no kwqualms about it, there's a racial element to this movement. this resurgence can be seen in the headlines of conservative organizations like heritage action and the family research counc council. it's more than headlines and rhetoric. it's turning into real action at the state level. 20 states have signed laws opting out of the president's health care law. in 37 states laws have been introduced to combat any federal gun legislation. and just this year alone, 30 states have introduced stricter or new voter id laws. joining me now to discuss the history of the resurgence of the states rights movement in this country is sam townhouse "new york times" in the and msnbc contributor james peterson. thank yo thanks to you both. james, when we talk about states rights, people don't realize it's a very dark history. certainly there's the civil war. but then there's also when ronald reagan i

it be a replay of george w. bush never being able to recover from the be backel of katrina? >> president obama has been seen up until maybe this year into his presidency as someone who is detail oriented, cerebral, speaks in paragraphs as a college professor would. and now, as i said earlier, he's become the i don't know leader. and as president bush with katrina, he was the decider. and then what happens? then we had that shot that the white house released from the helicopter of him sitting in a cushy chair looking down on katrina, seeing the millions of people who no longer have homes. and then he said something about the head of the emergency management agency. heck of a job, you're doing a heck of a job, brownie. when it was a complete disaster. moefts moments like this in presidencies can define the second term. >> i want to pick up about the partisans on both sides. let's take a look. these are not just people on the left or the right. let's take a look at what ed schultz had to say on msnbc. >> i think that network reporters throughout the entire industry may be caught in a dilemma that
in secrecy, and once they are completed, obama wants to rush the agreement through congress, fast-tracking, they call it, with our elected representatives given the choice only of voting it up or down. last year, over 130 members of congress asked the white house for more transparency about what's being negotiated and were essentially told to go fly a kite. you can be sure of this, however. a select group of corporate partners, companies like generax electric, goldman sachs, and pfizer, the pharmaceutical giant, are not likely to be in the dark. players like these stand to be the real beneficiaries of the agreement, because like other so-called "free trade" agreements, tpp actually will reward those at the top, even as it creates rules that will override domestic laws on the environment, workplace safety, and investment. corporate lobbyists already are lining up in washington to ram the agreement through once the white house hurries it out of the delivery room. how do we know this? because some vigilant independent watchdogs are tracking the negotiations with sources they trust, a
and border security subcommittee. congressman, great to have you with us. let's start with, if we may, obama care. this president lied. his administration lied. and persisted over a period of more than three years in maintaining the fiction that people could keep their insurance plans if they chose. your reaction? >> well, i hate it for my fellow citizens, but there were lots of voices warning that what he was saying was just not going to be a true or a lie or mendacious or whatever synonym you want to use. and that's not the only mischaracterization. your premiums are going to be higher, and your coverage is going to be worse. you would think at a certain point, politics aside, that people would get tired to by being lied to by people in positions of power whether that's the president, the head of the nas, the attorney general, but we had an election a couple years ago, and the calls in part, he perpetrated this myth, he was re-elected. >> and speaking of myths being perpetrated and this administration responding in peculiar ways, marilyn tavvenner, the centers for medicaid and medicaid ser
years of president obama's second term as president , that will really shift the balance of power in washington, d.c. i think it will be in a positive way. >> we will, of course, be tracking those elections primary to finish. senator, thank you for coming in. good to see you. >> thanks, shannon. >>> john kerry making a brief stop in cairo in an effort to warm up frosty relations with egypt. tensions have been high since the first democratically elected leader mohamed morsi was ousted in july. kerry the highest official to visit since then. and a news conference with the foreign minister acknowledged what he called challenges, but said there are signs that the country's military-backed rule you ares are moving toward democracy. >>> republican senator lyndsay graham says he is willing to do whatever it takes to get answers about exactly what happened the night of the benghazi attack that left four americans dead. he says he will even holdup presidential appointees. >> i shouldn't have to do this. i shouldn't have to make these kind of threats. they should provide in a responsible wa
